Several months ago I suggested that each station have it's own "chat channel" or something similiar, just so that the station would be a little more social than just staring at a list of "guests".

If this walking around thing included a bar like someone else mentioned (or just a waiting room or something) and let us talk to the other avatars, I think it would really add something to the game, a social aspect that is greatly missing. It also would add some value to the station itself, if the environments were different and/or modifyable (dance floor anyone? LOL)

Unfortunately the pessimist in me believes we won't see ANYTHING like this until 2010 or later...

That is a bloody awesome idea, i'd love to be able to relax in a bar with music chatting with the other avatars in a station only comm, or just to whoever you sit with or something, definately an expandable idea

honestly if i wanted a first person player game..... i wouldnt come to eve.

i think its a terrible idea and the trade off for lag is not worth the development time or cost.... please put your eggs in another basket, but thats just my humble opinion

I was kinda thinking that for the combat part they should just make the walking around bit an FPS. I don't want to have to train skills to shoot a pistol at someone. Also, I'm not too sure if it would be a good idea to let any combat in the walking around bit affect the space bit of EVE (like trying to take a station by attacking it from the inside, etc.) since that would mess with the "Big Ships" part of the game, which is what the Devs don't want.

And also, NO dancing? c'mon... c'mon! Laughing

I'm all for a bit of station action, but I'd just like to say that I hope any developments really do err on the side of framerate rather than fancy visuals. It should be about game play rather than realism IMO. Same applies to inflight visuals. Keep it simple.

Don't for gods sake make the mistake made by Oblivion where not even the best gfx cards can run it will all the options enabled. The beauty of eve at the moment is that fairly much all gfx cards can handle it. We have enough to contend with with lag, we don't want to have to worry about frame rates too.

This is the most exciting thing i've seen coming in eve since it started. I hope to see this happen soon, maybe in the next expansion. Good luck CCP!

and

i agree with the above post, keep it simple at first and gradually work on improvements over time.

I hope that this doesn't take development capacity away from the engineers actually implementing new content that matters.

This seems like fluff. It sucked in EnB and I don't imagine it will bring terribly much to the game dynamic here, either.

Agreed. Build on what is already in the game. for example you could allow players or corps to open businesses in station. Build an economy around that where profits can be made and raw materials/supplies have to be shipped in etc. heck you could even open a strip joint with some exotic dancers :D

Playing "EVE: The card game" in stations along with lipsynced in-game voicechat would pretty much be "teh pwn".

I'm not to big of a fan of the walking avatar part, but I do think it'd be cool to move around inside stations...maybe even in a vehicle that interfaced with the capsuleer.

I've been under the impression that a pod pilot's body was mostly atrophic except for the brain (basically the body was dead). I'm really interested about how CCP applies the sci-fi aspect to game mechanics, for which I've been so far really impressed. :D

If CCP goes the vehicle route that also makes it an easier segway to planetary landing, no pressure of course ;)

stribog yeh that would be good but the ammount of lagg that would come from it would be huge and would take alot of money to setup probly lol

ive always thought we could do mini games in the station aswell like ...for example nortz nd crosses.
clubs would be cool aswell ofcorse only players over 18 allowed in it lol

i would like to see this offer something of real strategic value if it were implemented.

so you beat your opponent at tower spamming but they still hold the station? man up, get your guns and board the sonofa***** ! Twisted Evil

its in the storyline, troops invading the station, shutting down the sentry guns outside / turning them on their enemies, shutting down lighting and whatever else you mind can imagine.

we aren't going to see this for SOME time to come. the abilities of the walking avatar i'm sure will advance slowly after that.

if you want a FPS or something like that, be prepared to wait 2 years minimium to see it, but i'm sure in that time they will find a good way to integrate it into eve so that while it holds a strategic value, its only a small part of the bigger picture, and the ships outside and the strategies in place still run the empires.

antiflamitory spray: dont like the idea? well what do you do in the game? i'm sure you dont like plenty of ways ppl spend their time in eve (pvp'rs that hate mining, miners that hate pvp) just look at this as another aspect of the game others can choose to play but that you can ignore and hate Very Happy

how about you fix the myraid of bugs, caveats and shortcomings of POS's before you add another hudgly inefficent feature to the game that will bring headaches and woes to the masses.....

Yea i hope you guys get the Station Walking soon,

I mean i agree the only thing that is bizzare about the game is beying stuck in a stupid POD, and the character screen is like 20th century with Cartoons instead of seriously visible characters.

This is awesome i hope its soon too

Boarding is a fantastic idea! It doesnt even have to be an FPS. It could be a variation of the current real time-ish turn-based eve combat system. Orbiting someone in a hallway would look rather... dumb though. You could equip various things to help your character survive (futuristic kevlar and shields immidiately spring to mind) and there could be a whole array of weapons (rocket launchers, beam rifles, machine guns). Yeah, they wont do it for awhile, but such a thing would be AWESOME. Shocked

Hmmm boarding....could include boarding ships. imagine being able to put crew on your ship and marines so that when a player boards, if you have the better crew you might be able to fight off the attack! Even go so far as to repel the boarding party and board the enemy ship?

OK this is pure fanatasy, but the possibilities are entertaining. Why bother boarding? So you can salvage the wreck and get the mods. Would make pirating interesting in that the pirate will need a ship capable of holding a decent boarding party and also be able to watch out for other pirates coming in and challenging them for the kill. Adding this element could mean that pod killing could be removed from the game and replaced with shooting the person face to face! LOL.

Guess this is done already, at the entry/exit points of a station.
